More about Jaye Martin:
Jaye Martin began practicing yoga in 1998 after successful careers as a professional musician and a ballet dancer with the Joffrey Ballet in New York and the Sarasota Ballet. While dancing, he discovered his talent for articulating and teaching complex dance moves. That talent transferred easily to yoga, and his students soon were wowed by his ability to guide them safely into complex and advanced yoga poses.
Initially, Jaye studied Ashtanga yoga with David Swenson and Vickie Sorenson, and he taught in that style for four years before finding Anusara yoga. Now certified in Anusara, Jaye apprenticed with John Friend and has both studied and taught with Betsey Downing, Douglas Brooks, and Sianna Sherman. Presently, Jaye instructs several yoga teacher trainings, and he leads workshops as well as retreats internationally. When he is at home in sunny Sarasota, Florida, he teaches a devoted following at Garden of the Heart Yoga Center.
